Tax set-off meeting uneventful

February 09, 2005|by BRIAN SHAPPELL

SHARPSBURG - The tax set-off meeting between the Washington County Commissioners and the towns of Sharpsburg and Keedysville seemed to surprise the commissioners this year on two fronts - that there was little in the form of verbal exchange and that representatives from Keedysville did not attend.

Sharpsburg is slated to receive $3,871 in 2005, down $105 from the tax setoff amount from last fiscal year. Keedysville will receive $2,699, which is $73 less than it got last fiscal year.

Keedysville officials were not in attendance, which Sharpsburg Town Council members and Commissioners Vice President William Wivell called surprising.

"I don't know what happened there," Wivell said late Tuesday.

When the time came to talk about the tax setoff at Sharpsburg Town Hall, there were no questions for the commissioners.

Commissioners President Gregory I. Snook briefly discussed the possibility of setting up an office for the area's resident deputy.
